Since our Independence, India has launched so many schemes to tackle the issue of malnutrition and also made rapid strides in improving the rates of malnutrition and also put efforts for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But still, we continue to have one of the world's highest child undernutrition rates, impacting the child's health and development. Schemes and policies are not able to produce their full potential due to corruption and lack of transparency and accountability. Food insecurity affects the children because it affects their physical and mental growth. World has just experienced the biggest shock since World War II and Covid-19 has touched all segments of the population around the globe and it effects the world's poorest and most vulnerable sections of the society. It also highlighted the profound inequalities existing in the society. During these periods, children are at risk not only of infection, but they are also affected by the disruption of essential preventative and food essential supplies given by the government.
